I liked Burger Me in Truckee. It’s location at the end of its heavily tourist laden main drag is perfect. You can park across from Burger Me, grub, and then walk a couple blocks to the American Bar, while wives and girlfriends shopping in one of the 80 nic-nak shops along the way, it’s a win-win.
Back to the burger review.
We stopped here because Guy Feiri, had done a show from here, which usually means it’s gonna be good; and it did not disappoint. Burger Me started as a Food Bank, but quickly became known for their burgers. So, they opened Burger Me to front the operation. They still run the Food Bank, but ever since Guy stopped by, the burgers are taking front stage.
Suzie should be lumped in with the other chain cafe’s of it’s caliber, Habit, 5 Guys, etc, but this one is the original. Not that they have any other locations, but it is owned by the 33rd Street Bistro company. Apparently their used to be a Suzies in Land Park, and two brothers wanted to recreate the burgers of their past. So, they converted 1960′s Orbit/Philips 66 Gas Station (Googie Architecture), complete with roll-up doors into their ideal burger stand. Good for them to turn this dump that used to be a LubeStop into something nice.
